Chiefs’ troubles return

Kgatleng outfit, Mochudi Centre Chiefs is still battling its common problems. Even after so many attempts of bringing the two warring factions together under one roof, there appears to be no sign of reconciliation.

Just a month after the team announced to have held a fruitful general assembly where a committee was elected, sleeping dogs however, have not be left to lie. A committee spearheaded by chairman, Tseing Ramocha has started firing from their corner, arguing that, “a court order has been defied” prior to electing a new committee. This committee wants proper adherence to the law for the sake of progress or the same problems will be taken to court yet again.

On the 16th of August, the same committee wrote to their counterpart stating their displeasure, the same communication was copied to the premier league offices-a structure Centre Chiefs has affiliated to. “On that note, we inform your office that the elective general assembly was held on the 5th of August 2017 in Mochudi even though the society (the applicant) had withdrawn from the transitional committee. Resultantly by holding the said elections, Mochudi Centre Chiefs Trust which is a member of the transitional committee, is not complying with the terms of the court order of the 22nd February 2017,” part of the letter reads.

The Ramocha committee which is battling Centre Chiefs Trust formerly led by, among others, Clifford Mogomotsi and Raymond Tsheko believes that resolutions of the August 5 elective congress are unlawful since they were not part of the proceedings.
When commenting on the matter, a long standing member of the club Clifford Mogomotsi said there is no how they have defied the court, if anything, it is the Ramocha group that have gone against the order. He said Ramocha decided to pull out and was nowhere to be seen until the elections were held. Mogomotsi believes they have respected the court order by holding the assembly on the stipulated date.

“There is no how we can be accused of defying the court; we were on serving on the transitional committee (Ramocha included) as per the guidance of the court. When things got ugly, Ramocha decided to pull out, hoping everything else would collapse,” he said. Mogomotsi further asserted that, they held on until the time of the meeting arrived. “We were voted by the masses, as per the court order, we are responsible to them, and this is as simple as that.”

On the back drop of this scandal, there is fear that the once popular team will lose its spot on the premier league. It is reported that all the sixteen teams participating on the elite league have declared they will not to take football matters to court.  
However, Mogomotsi dismissed those doubts. “We are on track, we have been assessed, twice our files have been returned to us, there is no room for error,” he said. Chiefs finished the last season on a low note. For the second season running, they are losing quality players while on one hand failing to recruit equally good players.
